MSNBC pundit Pat Buchanan on Rep. Joe Barton's stirring and heartfelt apology to Tony Hayward and BP during congressional hearings this morning and why he is probably America's greatest American hero for what he has done…
"I will say this. Barton made a very courageous statement in my judgment, when you consider that BP is probably universally loathed and even hated for what has happened, that horrendous tragedy down on the Gulf."
I guess, when you put it that way, it is kind of courageous. In the same way that it's courageous for Pat Buchanan to go on TV and defend Barton's apology.
Wait a sec. "Courageous" is a synonym for "obsequious," isn't it? (My thesaurus is currently in the shop.)
